Gospel Goodness


Tune: Horsley

('There is a green hill far away')

Romans 5 v.6-11


When we were without strength, at right

Time, Christ did in our sight

Die for the ungodly to bring

Salvation, praises ring


For scarcely for a righteous man

Will one die if one can

Yet perhaps for a good man some

Would dare to die, so come


But God commends to us His love

And Spirit, holy dove

In that while we were yet sinners

Christ died for us, appears


Much more now being justified

By His blood, none beside

We shall be saved from wrath through Him

Sins forgiven our hymn


For if, when we were enemies

God looks on us and sees

Sends His Son to us reconcile

By His life all the while


Much more having been reconciled

Now, cleansed and undefiled

We shall be saved by His life, for

He our atonement sure
